Spice drawer removal? 2000 25' Safari

Posted 05-22-2016 at 03:19 PM by cxlairstream

Something fell in behind the slide out spice cabinet preventing closure of drawer. How do you undo the slide track in order to remove the cabinet drawer?

Sovereign in Ten Mile

On January of 2016 We begin researching Airstreams. We did a lot of reading on general information and noted prices to determine a fair price versa condition. On April 3 we made a down payment on a 1985 Sovereign 29 foot rear bedroom. On April 10 the Sovereign was delivered, I do not have a weight distribution hitch yet.

Trying to figure out how to size pictures to post as this Airstream needs some TLC.

OEM Lighted Vent Rebuild II

Posted 03-29-2016 at 09:46 PM by noremark
Tags light, vent

So after chewing on it a minute I decided to repaint the vent covers, and save $150.00. We will see if I still feel that way after I re-instal the units. I think with all the windows the Excella has I should not miss what little natural light they provided.

Now its hurry and wait for UPS to deliver the new Torque Operator and we should be Good to Go.

starting the banquette

Posted 03-01-2016 at 02:53 PM by nskinner

Before building out the shower stall I have decided to upgrade the supply lines to the bathroom and kitchen while I can. They all passed inspection but upgrading now seems the best option. I'm part way through that process using 1/2" PEX but we are still having mostly sub zero highs here which makes plumbing a challenge. So until it warms up a bit I'll be working at the front end of the trailer.
Here our plan is to replace the nasty old Gaucho with a horseshoe banquette and a telescoping...
